A National Democratic Congress (NDC) communicator has allegedly been stabbed to death by his wife at Mampong in the Ashanti Region, party officials have confirmed.

Osei Yaw Akoto, known as ‘Borga’, 45, was discovered in a pool of blood at his home Thursday night but sadly passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital.
